Xinhua News Agency, New York, November 15, by wire summary: us experts call for promoting the healthy development of Sino-US relations
Xinhua News Agency reporter
A number of senior US experts on Sino-US relations said at the annual dinner held by the National Committee on US-China Relations in New York a few days ago that the proper settlement of trade disputes between the United States and China and promoting the sustained, healthy and stable development of bilateral relations will benefit the peoples of the two countries. At the same time, it has a positive spillover effect on the world.
Former US Secretary of State Kissinger said that the United States and China should properly manage their differences, form a common belief in the future, and strive to build a "frank" bilateral relationship.
Kissinger said that both the United States and China are major powers in the world today, and the conflict between the two sides will lead to unimaginable consequences. The question facing the United States and China is whether the two sides can form enough common belief in the future to avoid a conflict between the two countries. I have confidence and at the same time look forward to the proper resolution of trade tensions between the United States and China and actively promote an agreement so that the dividends of US-China relations will benefit the world.
Orens, chairman of the National Committee on US-China Relations, pointed out that the tariff measure initiated by the United States on the basis of the economic fallacy that the bilateral trade deficit is of great importance has caused harm to the people of the United States and China. He stressed the importance of continuing exchanges between the United States and China in the fields of education, humanities, economy and trade, investment, and so on.
In the late 1970s, China opened its doors to the world, and Orens became the first American to enter China. Since then, he has often traveled between China and the United States, which is worthy of the name of "China pass." In his speech, he expressed his confidence in the future relations between the two countries with Li Bai's poem "I believe that one day I can ride the long wind to break the waves and hang up the cloud sails to advance bravely in the vicissitudes of the sea."
In her speech, former US Trade Representative Carla Hills said that she does not agree with the so-called "decoupling theory" between the United States and China. On the contrary, it is in the interests of both sides to work together to ensure peace and prosperity.
Evan Greenberg, chief executive of Cubo Insurance, said that cooperation and exchanges are beneficial to both sides, and that the American business community wants to maintain cooperation with China, not "decouple." "We hope to seek cooperation and healthy competition while defending their national interests." He said.
Ridalio, founder of Bridge Water, the world's largest hedge fund, looks back 35 years ago when he first came to China. He recalled that he overlooked the hutong outside the window on the 10th floor of a brown building in Beijing, imagining how reform and opening up would bring about changes to the "highly civilized, intelligent and warm" land. He said he was lucky to be able to understand the Chinese people in every way, deal with China's economic policymakers and see things from their point of view. China's development achievements over the past few decades have been "unparalleled miracles".
Dario said that China's history has forged its splendid culture and extraordinary strength. The United States for the United States, China for China, has its own unique course of development. I hope that the United States and China can deepen their understanding and look at issues from each other's point of view, so as to establish mutually beneficial and win-win bilateral relations, rather than looking forward to making each other exactly like themselves.
